e.l.f. Beauty Haul

cosmetics, makeup, blush, primer, eyes lips face, eye primer, lip exfoliator

My CVS changed up their beauty section a little bit and replaced the NYC section with an e.l.f. section.  Normally I go nuts and buy 250 billion lipsticks at a time but I had a little self-control and branched out to some different products.

This was the main thing that I wanted to try.  I have been using one of the lip scrubs from Lush, which comes in a pot and is made from ingredients that you can just lick off your lips.  This Lip Exfoliator from e.l.f. needs to be wiped off but it is less messy, in my opinion.

The Hydrating Under Eye Primer is definitely hydrating.  It is slightly pink when it comes out of the tube but it rubs in clear.  You need literally the tiniest amount.  The idea is that it prevents your concealer from settling into all of the "fine lines" a.k.a wrinkles that live under your eyes.  Or at least they live there under my eyes.  This may work in place of an eye cream for some people so I might try that and let you know what I think.

Another primer!  This one is just your basic face primer.  It is clear from the start and smooths onto your skin nicely.  Since it is clear it is meant for use with any skin tone.  e.l.f. does have a few other options but I thought I'd go with their basic option first.

There were two color choices in the e.l.f. display at my CVS - light and dark.  This is the light palette.  Obviously you can use each color separately or you can blend some or all together for a different look.  The salmon/coral color (on the left in the swatch picture) is flecked with little gold sparkles.

Let me know in the comments section if you have tried any of these products or if you like any other e.l.f. products that you think I should try.  They were super cheap.  I think the most expensive product I bought was $6.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I love elf products but I haven't tried any of the ones that you mentioned. The under eye prime looks super cool and I might get that one next time. If you like doing your brows you should definitely check out their little brow kit which is only 3 dollars and it's AMAZING ! :)

    1. Thanks for the tip! The brow kit will be next on my list because the one that I've been using is almost finished.
